Unanswered Questions

 

q8

I am ?? yrs old and I have so many unanswered questions!!!!

Q1.jpg

I still haven’t found out who let the Dogs Out…where’s the beef…how to get to Sesame Street… why Dora doesn’t just use Google Maps.

Q2.jpg

Why do all flavors of fruit loops taste exactly the same, or how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop……why eggs are packaged in a flimsy paper carton, but batteries are secured in plastic that’s tough as nails, yet light bulbs too are in a flimsy carton. Ever buy scissors? You need scissors to cut into the packaging of scissors.

Q3.jpg

I still don’t understand why there is Braille on drive up ATM’s or why “abbreviated” is such a long word; or why is there a D in ‘fridge’ but not in refrigerator…why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor yet dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons… why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections.

q4

And, why do you have to “put your two cents in” but it’s only a “penny for your thoughts”…where’s that extra penny going? Why do The Alphabet Song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star have the same tune… why did you just try to sing those two previous songs.

And just what is Victoria’s secret? ….and what would you do for a Klondike bar and you know as soon as you bite into it it falls apart.

Q5.jpg

Why do we drive on Parkways and park on Driveways?

Do you really think I am this witty?? … I actually got this from a friend, who stole it from her brother’s girlfriend’s, uncle’s cousin’s, baby momma’s doctor who lived next door to an old class mate’s mail man…Now it is your turn to take it from me…Peace!!

What Direction Do I Go

 

I dream very vividly and often. I wish I had a little camera to implant in my mind to record them. I have not written about my dreams in some time….but these past few days I have had some very profound ones. I really believe that dreams give us a glimpse of life on another level and provide information and messages that will help us in “real time”. So I took to my “Dream Cards” by Strephon Kaplan-Williams to bring you a message from the dreamland today. These are lovely cards…and are full of images and messages, including the primary message. I am going to list all of the secondary images and messages too, because they are rather profound, and I do not want us to miss anything. So, bear with a bit more lengthy post!

The card I pulled is:

Direction Dream Card

DIRECTIONGuiding, Destiny, Fulfilling (Central Image – A Bridge crosses a great chasm)

Message: Direction is when we value somewhere or something greater than life itself. Direction is not simply choosing goals and fulfilling them. All goals deceive, whether one is climbing ambition’s ladder, nurturing a family, or championing a major cause of the people. While these need commitment, they do not transcend the specifics of life. The only commitment that gives ultimate purpose is following Source energy to the end of your days, no matter where it leads you. Your Task Is: Ask if you have a purpose so valuable you can commit your life to it.

Secondary Images:

Snake: Only the choosing are chosen, only the chosen are choosing. Seek the source of what challenges you.

Door: Clearing obstacles is the first step in finding purpose. Learn from everything that does not go your way until you no longer want only your way.

Suitcase: The true cost of a journey is to give up what you don’t want to let go of. Hold on tightly, then choose to give.

Cards: Fortunes are not in the cards, but in the choices of life. Choose with certainty and never look back.

Stairs: If one has more than one direction in life, they tend to cancel each other out. For the moment, choose the most central direction.

Dog: To be led means to make anothers direction our own. Give up self-desire and be guided.

Car: To keep moving is not in itself a direction but a distraction. Stop yourself long enough to choose where you are going.

Lightening: The journey combines what happens to us with what we do about it. Act more from inner knowing than anxiety.

Direction 3from The Desk of MarDrag:
The Central Image, the Bridge, speaks of following Source energy no matter where it leads. (that “Source” is whatever it means to YOU). And….that our true Purpose is one that is so valuable to us that we commit our life to it. What could that be…to You? Seek the source of what challenges you, and find out. It is more important now than ever that we seek our True Self within and allow ourselves to be guided by that True Self.

Direction 9

And we can only be guided when we let go of everything that keeps us tethered to the past, or keeps us judging and questioning what our Direction is. “Give up self-desire and be guided” tells us to let go of the expectations we have for “needing and having” to know and be in control of our Direction. It is when we stop for a moment, listen to inner wisdom, and trust that voice, that we are guided by right action and our Direction becomes clear. The Direction we are pushing in is not always the “right” direction, and guidance will help us see if that is so.

Direction 4

I love the line, “Learn from everything that does not go your way until you no longer want only your way” because it reminds us that, while our individual tapestry is busily being woven, there is still the greater picture to be considered, and how our tapestry fits into that Great Tapestry. Perhaps now, more than ever, we need to reflect on this. And there are lessons to be learned from that which does not go our way from which we will see, there may be another way. Our way is not always the better way or the right way. And…it is ok if it is not. We should not expect ourselves to know the way all the time. Sometimes, it is ok to not know and it is necessary to listen and be led by the guidance of our inner wisdom as well as our Higher Power (whatever that means to us).

Direction 8

The rest of the messages tell us to slow down, stop even, to listen and pay attention so we can choose with clarity where we are going, instead of tumbling head on into the future. Let go of old habits and fears that keep us stuck, ask for guidance and it will come, then choose a Direction and know that we will be guided by our inner wisdom and knowing. It is time to trust that Wiser Self within us all and act from Inner Knowing rather than Anxiety. Fear, Guilt and Anxiety lead us nowhere…but Inner Wisdom and Knowing…which we ALL have…leads us always in the right….Direction.

Blessings!

Monday Message ~ Introspection

 

Happy Labor Day! In the quiet of this early morn, the animals came and gathered in the area…and in my mind. They called to me, and let me know there was a message to be had from them this day. And so, as I honor the animals their wisdom, I took to my book and Medicine Cards of “The Discovery of Power Through The Ways of Animals” by Jamie Sams and David Carson. It was this card that came to my hand:

Bear 1

Bear ~ Introspection: “Bear…Invite me into the cave, where silence surrounds the answers you gave.”

Message (paraphrased): “The strength of Bear medicine is the power of Introspection. It lies in the West on the great Medicine Wheel of Life. Bear seeks honey, or the sweetness of truth. Bear enters the womb-cave to hibernate, to digest the year’s experience. It is said our goals reside in the West also. To accomplish the goals and dreams that we carry, the art of Introspection is necessary.

The womb-cave is the place where all solutions and answers live in the harmony with the questions that fill our realities. If we choose to believe there are many questions to life, we must also believe that the answers to these questions reside within us. Each and every being has the capacity to quiet the mind, enter the silence, and know.

In the cave, Bear seeks answers while he/she is dreaming or hibernating. Bear is then reborn in spring, like the opening of spring flowers. In Bear crossing our path today, the Power of Knowing has invited you to enter the silence and become acquainted with the womb-cave, so that your goals may become realities. This is the strength of Bear.”

Bear 2

from The Desk of MarDrag:

In our busy and complicated lives these days, it is often very difficult to find the time, place, and space to have “quiet time”…or a chance for Introspection. We are always in a hurry, or another email has come through, or any manner of distraction takes our time from out of our hands, and we sometimes do not even realize we have not secured a moment for ourselves.

But…Bear is telling us today…that it is important, even critical…to seek that time for Introspection and to “go into the silence”, into the womb-cave, to find our Truth. For as this message says…it is only in that silence that “all solutions and answers live in harmony with the questions that fill our realities”. That is a profound statement. For it is True that for every question, there is an answer, or it would not be a question. So, they must both reside within us. Never doubt that.

As the great cacophony of life erupts around us…how can we possibly hear the sometimes faint voice of truth or answers? And too, we tend to look outside ourselves for answers, or at least the validation of the answer we have come up with.

Only in the silence…will we know.

And that is one of the sweetest moments of life…when we know we know the answer.

Be like the Bear…and go into the cave, into the silence, and seek your answers there. It is when we step away from a problem or issue, that we can expand our vision to include the wisdom that is innate in our beings. Listen for and cultivate that voice. That voice that you will only hear when you go quiet.

Bear 4

No matter how busy you are…seek that moment of Introspection. The Power of Knowing invites you, with the strength of a Bear.

Blessings!
